You stand by me when hope
Seems gone, powerless, motionless.
Life’s deepening crevices, scarred expanse
when all seems lost
evaporated, by crime of time.
You stand by me, you’re always here
held deep within my soul.
No duty-bound, air suffocate
encroaching space does soulmates’
love, now take place.
Knowledge of heart, conviction true
Held deep within, protected.
Eternal love, to thine own self be true.
You stand by me, with sheltered, sided-wings,
Motionless whispers, silencing your breath
As you rebound each fall, I take.
Protecting every teardrop
as life’s experience creates.
You stand by me, through love’s timeless expanse
watching each rainbow bloom.
With each new bloom, love’s Pot of Gold
Eternal love stays true.
You stand by me, with deepening crevice
With silent speech you catch
Me, as I fall
Soulmates entranced, through Pure Love’s dream
Enriched within loves soul.
